Cornerback Pat Fischer and special teams standout Bob Brunet, who collectively compiled 26 seasons in the National Football League before major injuries last season, have not been offered new contracts by the Redskins.
It is unlikely either would be able to play this season because of his injuries.
They were among 11 Redskins who became free agents yesterday. Eight were given qualifying offers by the Redskins, meaning the team has the right to match any other team's offer for their services. New coach Jack Pardee said, "I don't expect to lose any of them."
Pardee said those eight are defensive tackle Bill Brundige, linebacker Mike Curtis, linebacker Greg Hartle, running back Jim Kiick, wide receiver Charley Taylor, tight end Jerry Smith, defensive end Will Wynn and linebacker Pete Wysocki.
The contract of Tyrone Dye, a freeagent defensive tackle who broke a foot in training camp and spent the season on the injured reserve list, was not picked up.
In Baton Rouge, La., Brunet said he continues to suffer from a serious neck injury he incurred against the Dallas Cowboys.
"I doubt I'll be able to play," said Brunet, a nine-year Redskin veteran. "It makes me a free agent. Let's just leave it at that. My primary interest is to get over the injury."
Brunet reported that his examination by team physician Stanford Lavine last week had been postponed because lavine was out of town.
Fischer could not be reached for comment last night. He is experiencing numbness after undergoing surgery on his lower back early last season. Pardee said that if Fischer plays his 18th NFL season, it will be with the Redskins.
Pardee said that George Allens formal selection as Los Angeles Rams coach - Pardee called it "the worst kept secret going" - means he should be able to name most of his coaching staff, if not the entire staff, by next week.
Defense coordinator LaVern Torgeson and special teams coach Paul Lanham, assistants under Allen who were asked to stay on by Pardee, are expected to make their decisions early next week. Both are likely to rejoin Allen with the Rams.
Pardee said there would be no announcements concerning appointments to his coaching staff until next week. He said he is returning to Chicago today to move his family here over the weekend and to talk to former aides with the Bears.
Pardee said he expected to bring three of the four remaining assistants from that staff to Washington. He acknowledged again that Bob Bowser, his special assistant, would be coming here, but no contract had been signed.
He would not same the other two. The remaining assistants are offensive line coach Ray Callahan, defensive line coach Brad Echlund and special teams-receivers coach John Hilton.
"I've devoted full-time to talking to prospective staff members since last Wednesday (his first day at Redskin Park)," Pardee said. "I'm anxious to get it dine. I'm glad this (Allen's hiring) happened today, not another week or so down the line."
Pardee indirectly said he would be willing to listen to a Rams offer for quarterback Billy Kilmer, if he were the veteran quarterback Allen would like his new team to acquire.
"We're expecting Billy to be here. You know, Jack Pardee would be traded if we got the right deal," Pardee said. "We've only got two quarter backs (Kilmer and Joe Thiesmann). We're talking about getting more in here, not getting rid of some.
"Billy's valuable to us. What would they give up? He's more valuable to the team he's with than any other team. They'd like to have him, but we're not going to do it just to accomodate them
"Billy's a winner. It's hard to predict whether any player can get through a 16-game season, regardless of what position he plays. You need depth. You need quality."
Kilmer, 38, was Allen's first acquision here seven years ago. He has not been able to play a full season either of the past two years because of injuries.
Team president Edward Bennett Williams said Pardee and the new general manager, whom he hopes to name by the end of the month, could formulate such a trade, but that he would have final approval "on something like that."
In management developments yesterday, Rams general manager Don Klosterman and Cowboys vice president/personnel Gil Brandt each told The Washington Post that they were not interested in the Redskins job.
Williams said he interviewed no candidates yesterday. He said he expects to have talked to six candidates by the weekend, including members of the Redskins organization.
Williams fired Allen on Jan. 16.
"I wish him well. I wish (Rams owner) Carroll Rosenbloom well," Williams said yesterday. "It was a foregone conclusion in my mind. I wasn't going to sit around and wait untilthey made the announcement."
